Twitter’s initial decision to suspend the official campaign account of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) caused a massive boycott of the site’s advertising platform from the GOP. After the senator told a radio station that the GOP was “in a major war with [Twitter],” the company backed down and restored Team Mitch’s account.
Twitter’s war against conservatives and Republicans has some collateral damage — the company’s advertising business. Twitter blocked the campaign account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) account from posting on August 7. The platform claimed that in posting a video showing the violent threats aimed at McConnell, Team Mitch violated Twitter policy on violence and harassment. Republicans did the only thing left to do: they stopped spending money on Twitter ads until further notice.
Twitter is now acting like a dictatorship that allows itself to meddle in political campaigns and ban conservatives for exposing the violent left. So it should come as no surprise that the official campaign Twitter account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was suspended for sharing a video of the violent threats being made against the senator.

After the El Paso shooter uploaded a four-page manifesto to the online chat forum known as 8chan, the media and journalists lobbied for the site to be taken down. Some liberal journalists insisted that censorship was a solution to shooters posting their manifestos on the site.
